From setting up Entourage as the default mail application to managing projects across the other Office applications, Entourage 2008 Essential Training teaches users how to fully take advantage of this software. Instructor Garrick Chow begins by covering how to create and configure accounts and import Address Book information, and then moves on to explore working with the Calendar to adding and updating events, sending and receiving invitations, flagging to-do items, creating project plans, and more.
The last thing I'd like to show you this chapter is how to set up Entourage to be your default e-mail program on your Mac, because after all, if you spent all this time setting up Entourage, you obviously want it to open up when you click e-mail links on webpages and you want to be the go-to program when it comes to working with the e-mail on your computer. Now right now, I have my default settings on my Mac. So if I go out to my browser, and this is just Microsoft's press page here, with their press contacts. They have a bunch of links over here that link to e-mail addresses. You see down here in the status bar when I roll over them, you can see the e-mail addresses down there. Now when I click on one of these, the e-mail program that opens up a my Mac right now it is Apple Mail.
But of course I want it to be Entourage. Now you can switch the default e-mail program a couple of different ways here. You can do it directly from Mail by choosing Mail Preferences, going to General, and you can choose your default e-mail reader here, either by selecting Mail or you can choose Select and then browse for Entourage or whatever program you wanted to use. Or I can do it directly from Entourage, which I might as well do since I'm planning on working in Entourage. We do that by going to Entourage Preferences and right under the General preferences here, we can click Set Entourage to be my default e-mail client. That's all there is to it.
So now if I go back to my browser and click on one of these links again, you see that Entourage opens up. In fact, if I go back to Apple Mail at this point, I'll go ahead and close that once, and open Preferences again. You can see that Entourage is now shown as the default reader. So again, you can set up the default reader in Mail itself or in Entourage. Either way you want to do it. I'll just quit Mail since I won't really need that again. So basically, that's how you do it. So now anytime you have a webpage e-mail link that you click on, Entourage opens up a new message window and we can type up our message.
And the works not just for Safari. It works for any other browser you have set up on your Mac, like Firefox for example.
